Mumbai Coastal Road by December, pothole-free city in 2 years, ET Infra

MUMBAI: Chief minister Eknath Shinde on Monday conducted an inspection of the BMC’s coastal road project and said it will start by the end of this year as work was being carried out on a war-footing.

Shinde again reiterated that Mumbai will become pothole-free in two years as cement concrete (CC) roads were being constructed.

Shinde’s statement comes after CC road works faced criticism from Shiv Sena (UBT) and BJP leaders. With new companies which bagged CC contracts failing to start work, the BMC imposed a penalty of Rs 16 crore on three of the five companies. “We have taken up 500 beautification works and 800-1000 more spots will be identified,” he added.
